God communicating himself to man
Revelation is the act of God whereby he gives knowledge of Himself which man could not otherwise know. Therefore, there is a great difference between the revelation of God and the discovery of God. Discovery implies that man, by exploration or research, has found God, who was unknown or had hidden. Discovery further implies that God was inactive in the process and that man took the initiative in seeking after God. However, the opposite is true. God revealed himself because a man could not have found God by searching for him. Man is spiritually limited, and man would not have sought for God, because a holy God condemns and punishes man, who is a sinner.
Theology for Today
Elmer L. Towns
We are always thinking about the things we do wrong and we fail to remember that anyone who have already accepted Jesus Christ into their lives are accounted as righteous in the eyes of God. Jesus took away the ability for sin to reign over a believer. Giving in to and agreeing with sin is actually rejecting the ultimate sacrifice of Jesus who died that we may be free. We are actually choosing to continue to be slaves to sin.
As a Christian, we do not practice being a sinner. We may unintentionally do wrong but when we are born again, we do not allow our guilt to make us feel un-worthy. Keep resisting until you finally conquer and make your flesh line up with the spirit person. The only way for this to happen is through constant meditation on the Word of God and remembering that as a born again Christian Jesus died for all your sins; past, present and future. The Bible tells us in:
Hebrews 10:26-28 That….
If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God. Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses.
Exodus 31:3 of the Bible states: And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in ALL manner of workmanship,….
Brothers and sisters true believers are Filled with God’s skills
When your relationship and bond with the Lord gets stronger, you become spiritually alive and highly skilled in all wisdom, knowledge, understanding and abilities. As you consistently focus on the word of God, God begins to reveal more and more of Himself to you, therefore, you begin to see through his eyes, you hear as He hears and you speak the way he speaks. Most people who make a firm statement actually believe that he or she is right in what they are saying. No one makes a statement thinking he or she is wrong. The word of God fills you with the spirit of God in all wisdom, understanding, knowledge and all manner of workmanship. The word of God never comes back void and without meaning. You speak with boldness and confidence and now your family, and friends see you differently. Some will call you a hypocrite or try to throw your past in your face to discourage you. Brothers and sisters, this is truly a set up and as I have said before, the enemy is out to attack your character and to convince you that Gods words are not true. All you have to do is start studying the Bible, praying, going to church, or witnessing to loss souls and Watch how the enemy comes forth with constant distractions.
